It has repeatedly. It’s part of the original discussion. AS and I both agree that the proposed limitation is a good idea. We agree that prohibiting the criminal, terrorist and insane is wise.
We do not agree that prohibiting the poor and uneducated is wise or appropriate. We do not agree with allowing them to come here and collect welfare. Again, we agree with prohibiting welfare payments for them as suggested. I’d agree with that to a longer term even. Nearly every argument against allowing the poor and uneducated into our nation in this thread has been predicated on the idea that they would collect welfare. Another one was worry about wages, but for conservative capitalists to start arguing about protecting wages is an entirely different discussion that will separate capitalists from socialists.
We do not agree that culture is grounds for barring legal entry. Every argument about culture in this thread has been about fear of terrorists and criminals, which we can and should eliminate to the best of our ability. We can never expect 100-percent safety, but then I think that’s what our society expects these days on the left and the right.
AS and I both agree substantially with this proposal, but we both find the suggested limitations based on education, wealth and culture to be appalling.
